Ronald Thompson started as a professional hairdresser. Hence his hair fetishism. This Stiletto Chair is made from 100% human hair mixed with polyester matrix, rather than from glass reinforced polyester. Studies show the mixture with hair to be 20% stronger than with glass. Future chairs will be made with bio-resins. Eventually Ronnies aim is to create a sustainable and degradable chair. In the UK alone there are 2.800 tonnes human hair put in the waste bin. Ronnie is now looking to other use of the material to further it.
Via Pilius X Design.

Oh, what an elegant beauty! I love the whole idea behind it too!
reminds me of the sculpture that comes to life and dances calypso in bettlejuice!
